While It Lasts….

The weight and the pain,
The hurt and the tears,
The night and the terrors,
A lonely heart feels it all.

Time may not heal it all,
Words may not solve it all,
Success may not cover it all,
For a love lost may never be replaced

See those smiling faces,

Hear those singing voices,

Watch those dancing feet,

For they are what will be remembered when time and music stops.

So, love everyone you can,
Cherish everything you can,
Appreciate those around you today,
For you never know who may stay or leave tomorrow.

-Ezekiel Godsfavour.

The Curse Of Truth: What Is Your Truth? 

Every story have got two sides to it, and it is not about which of it is true or false. Every coin have got two different sides to it, and this is not about choosing which side is the head or tail. Every day have got two parts to it, and this is not about the reality of the morning and evening, but in all, it is a question of what you believe.

Don’t get too confused over this because, believe me, life is very simple. And as crazy and unexperienced I may seem right now, the fact is every story has two sides to it, and they are your truth and the other truth. No lies involved.

Okay, let’s see.

My Thoughts In 10 Minutes: Day 2.

Does My Past Really Matter? 

Often times, if not all the time, we hear people say to us, forget about the past, look to the future”, or we hear, the past is gone, and there is nothing you can do about it but you can determine what happens next” or something like, the past can’t be rewritten, but the future can be designed” and while all these are true in some sense, we find ourselves, sometimes, fighting with a shadow of our yesterday, and we begin to ask ourselves if the past is really gone.

My Thoughts In 10 Minutes: Day 1.

Will I Ever Be Successful? 

No doubt the last year is gone, and the new year is come, but one thing will always remain, your desire to be successful. 

Of a truth, accomplishments were made and a few desires gotten, maybe you recorded some achievement, maybe got that degree you have been chasing, got that job you wanted, bought that house, wrote that book, started that blog, or even got married or engaged to your sweetheart, and now with the year before you, so early as it is, you are starting to ask if this year will that year where all your dreams come true, and you have probably already envisaged how the end of the year would look like and what you must have achieved by that time, well, it is all good and nice, but honestly, pause for a moment. 

Ask yourself, “Am I ready for success?” 

It is very easy to be swept off the ground with the desire to be successful or the noise people make about it so quickly that most times we forget that there is always a  process to go through and one we must prepare for. We focus so much at the end of the journey that we totally ignore the journey itself, trying so hard to catch up with those ahead of us that we forget everyone got their own path to walk in and a process to follow. The question, “will I ever be successful?” begins to play in our hearts when we realize we are not getting exactly what we dreamed, not realizing that the amount of success we get is directly proportional to the amount of time spent in preparation. It is as simple as that. If you want a lasting successful story, then you must be ready to sacrifice time, and if you want that overnight success, be sure it will last for one night. 

Many atimes, we don’t get what we want because we don’t have the stamina to handle it. Some success are destructive because of poor preparation and management, so in order for us not to perish as a result of it, it doesn’t come to us. That is why I am saying, take your time, as for success, it will surely come. 

Do not rush to attain success, prepare for it. 

Do you want to have a successful career, then go get that knowledge and certificate needed. Do you want to be a successful fashion designer, go harness that skill. Do you want to publish that book, then learn how to be a better writer. Stop wasting your time looking at the distance you have to cover to meet up with those ahead, instead, focus on your process. Trust your process, ignore the side talks, don’t bother about the time, just get that fundamental you need to launch, and when you finally do launch, you will realize that you have all it takes to be what you have always dreamed of. 

So don’t rush to be successful, prepare for it, for success is sweeter when you prepare for it.

How Do I Love You? 

How do I love you

With this heart of mine? 

What do I bring in

Befitting only for you? 
How do I love you

With love for no other? 

What words do I sing

Only for your praise? 


How do I love you

And stay true? 

To worship

With heartbeats meant for you. 


How do I love you

In the midst of the crowd? 

Making every moment with you

An enchanting memory to cherish.


How do I still love you

When there are no more ways to make you smile? 

How do I still please you

When time and life are done and are gone? 


A song I was writing which turned out to be a poem. 

White Nightmare. 

When dreams become a burden 

And passion becomes a curse, 

The kiss of an angel is less desired 

Than the many arrows of the devil. 


What do you do when dreams become a nightmare, 

And the very thing that peirce your soul?  

What do you do when your demons are no where to be found, 

Because even they are afraid of your dream? 


I have no more wars to fight, 

And no more battles to wage, 

Not a thing to hang on to, 

And not a day to look forward to, 

For even my demons do abscond, 

And I am left with nothing to contend with. 


I am imprisoned by my dreams, 

And tormented by my lack of relief, 

I fear not for my now but for my tomorrow, 

For all I have are these white nightmares. 


Theory Of The Ripple Effect: We Are All Connected. 

I I took a walk down the street and found a young man who was weak. The countenance of his face was like a cloud of darkness hovering around a raging sea, and with the way he sat, hands over his head, I knew he had a troubled heart.

I had a place I was heading to, but something in me wouldn’t let me take another step, so I stood and watched, hoping I might learn what life wanted to teach.
